In the author's words, "we _form_ at age 30, we _transform_ at age 40, and we _transmute_ at age 50." Focusing on the transformation at age 40—the time of imbalance and spiritual confusion often referred to as the "midlife crisis"—she explores how kundalini energy, the liquid light of sex, can be creatively channeled by unblocking the chakras.

_Liquid Light of Sex_ is a life-changing book that opens up new dimensions for understanding what occurs during key life passages. With a specific focus on "mid-life crisis," Barbara Hand Clow explores how kundalini energy—the energy of eros that lies at the base of the spine, otherwise known as the "liquid light of sex"—can be unblocked and creatively channeled to permit successful movement through these potentially turbulent periods. She notes, "We form at age 30, we transform at age 40, and we transmute at age 50."
